SIMPSON, Rear-Admiral U.S.N. ; late President U.S. Naval Advisory Board. 

With Supplementary Chapters and Notes by J. D. JERROLD KKLLEV, Lieutenant U.S.N. 

Illustrated with over 100 Engravings of the principal Battle Ships of England, France, 
United States, Italy, Germany, &c. Second Edition. Royal 8vo. cloth, IDS. 6d. 

THE INFLUENCE OF SEA POWER UPON HISTORY, 1660-1783. By 

Captain A. T. MAHAN, U.S. Navy. Third Edition, Demy 8vo cloth, gilt top, i8s. 
" The author's matter is as absorbing as it is lengthy, and the whole budget of important facts 
which he has he.-ein collected are set forth in a style both graceful and succinct. It may be confi- 
dently asserted that by everyone possessing in any degree a taste for the incidents and conditions 
of nautical warfare, the 540 pages of this book will be read with the greatest appreciation." 
Admiralty Gazette. 

The Physical Geography of the Sea and its Meteorology. By M. F. 

MAURY, LL.D. Twentieth Edition. With New and Complete Index. Illustrated with 
numerous Charts and Diagrams. Crown Svo, cloth, 6s. 

The Physical Geography of the Sea is a new department of human knowledge. It has resulted 
rom that beautiful and admirable system of physical research in which all the maritime nations 
have agreed to unite, and for the furtherance of which bureaux have been established, especially 
in Holland, England, France, and the United States. 

Companion Work to "The Cruise of the 'Challenger.'" 
Three Cruises of the "Blake." By ALEXANDER AGASSIZ, Director of the 

Museum of Comparative Zoology at Cambridge, Mass. 2 vols., royal Svo, fully illustrated, 425. 
The Times says: "Professor Agassiz has to sustain the burden of a great and honoured 
name. Hitherto he has been little known beyond the select circles of science, where, however, 
he has gained for himself a reputation worthy of the name he bears. Solid evidence of the good 
work Professor Agassiz has been doing is now before the public. . . It is impossible to speak 
too highly of the results of the three cruises with which Professor Agassiz deals."

PREFACE. 



THE Exhibition is divided into four Main Sections, viz. : 

ARTS, NAVIGATION, MODELS, AND ORDNANCE, 

and these with their several Sub-Divisions are located in a series of Galleries, 
with each of which has been associated the name of some distinguished 
character in Naval History, viz. : 

The Franklin Gallery, containing the interesting and pathetic relics of the 

several Arctic Expeditions. 

,, Nelson ) > probably the most interesting and valuable 
Blake > collection of Art treasures and Relics ever 

Benbow ) brought together. 

,, Howe ,, ,, the "Miscellaneous Sub-Division" of the 

Exhibition. 

,, Cook ,, the Exhibits relating to : 

(a) The several branches of the Science of 

Navigation. 
(3) Boat Lowering and Life Saving. 

Seppings ,, Models of Marine Engines, and a complete 

history of Naval Architecture, ocularly demon's 
strated, from the time of the " Great Harry " 
to the present day. 

{devoted to Naval Ordnance, Torpedoes, Diving 
Apparatus, Electrical Appliances for Naval 
purposes, materials used in Ship and Engine 
Construction, Armour Plates, &c. 

In addition to the above there ie a special gallery, which has been designated 
"The Armstrong" gallery, and which is entirely occupied by the wonderful 
exhibits of the great Elswick Firm (Sir Wm. Armstrong & Co.), and a series 
of smaller structures (Kiosks) are ranged about the grounds, containing the 
separate exhibits of the larger Shipbuilding and other Firms. 

Throughout the Exhibition, endeavor has been made to so arrange the 
exhibits in chronological order as to at once convey to the visitor an idea of 
the gradual progress and development in all branches of Naval and Maritime 
matters ; and while the carrying out of such an arrangement does not readily 
lend itself to a strict classification for catalogue purposes, inasmuch as " Loan " 
and "Trade" exhibits, c., cannot be kept distinct (in Sections) the one from 



xvi Preface. 

the other, it is believed that it will prove none the less interesting on that 
account. 

In the compilation of this Catalogue the convenience of the visitor has 
always been kept in view, and while it purports to be a faithful record of the 
whole of the objects in the Exhibition, it has been arranged so as to serve the 
double purpose of Guide and Catalogue, in order that with this book as his 
vade niecitm the visitor may be " personally conducted " so to speak from 
entrance to exit. Should the visitor desire to proceed at once to any particular 
Gallery or Section he will be directed thereto on consulting the Key on page xli. 

Apart from the mere usefulness of the book as a Catalogue of the Exhibits, 
it is hoped that it may prove of interest in other directions. A series of 
articles has been written, which will be found preceding the principal sections 
(corresponding to the sections of the Exhibition) into which the book is divided, 
treating more fully of the particular subjects contained in those sections. To 
the Catalogue of the Arts Galleries has also been added a synopsis of the 
arrangement of Portraits, Battle Pictures, and Figure Subjects relating to 
prominent periods of British Naval History, as also a chronological list of the 
services of the Royal Navy, from the year 1512 to the present date, and brief 
biographical notices of the Officers whose portraits are exhibited, and notes on 
the battles depicted. 

In the hurry and difficulties which are inseparable from the production of 
the first edition of this Catalogue, it is probable that errors may have crept in 
and been overlooked ; it is believed however that these are not numerous or 
important, and in the meantime any intimation of corrections necessary to be 
made in future editions would be gladly received by 

THE EDITOR.

INTRODUCTION. 



THE possibility of holding an Exhibition illustrative of the history 
development and progress of the Navy was first discussed in the 
autumn of 1890, and, as an essential preliminary, H.R.H. the Duke 
of Edinburgh undertook to ascertain the wishes of H.R.H. the 
Prince of Wales on the subject. 

His Royal Highness not only signified his approval of the 
/project, but accepted the Presidency of the Council, and promised 
"to support the movement by every means in his power, a promise 
which has been fulfilled in the most ample and literal sense. 

In presiding over a meeting held on the 5th February, 1891, at 
the Royal United Service Institution, of the Council and others 
associated with the proposed Exhibition, His Royal Highness 
again expressed his cordial approval of the undertaking, and 
remarked that, in his opinion, it was the bounden duty of every 
Englishman to do his utmost to increase the popularity of the 
Navy, an object which he considered the proposed Exhibition was 
well calculated to fulfil. 

Her Majesty the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh also gave 
powerful and practical proof of their sympathy with the movement, 
not only by their patronage but by placing at the disposal of the 
Arts Committee many objects of great interest and value, and in 
this their example has been emulated by the Prince of Wales ; the 
Duke of Edinburgh, moreover, in his capacity as Naval Com- 
mander-in-Chief at Plymouth, has not only assisted in the work of 
the Central Committee, but has organised a local movement, of 
which the results can be best judged by an inspection of the 
Exhibition itself. 

The project having thus assumed a practicable shape a Com- 
mittee was formed under the presidency of Admiral Sir William 
Dowell, K.C.B., with Admiral Sir W. Houston Stewart, G.C.B., as 
Vice-Chairman. H.R.H. the Duke of Edinburgh was present at 
the first meeting of the General Committee, which was held at the 
Admiralty on the i6th September, 1890. 

The object of the Exhibition having been defined, the most 
important question which presented itself for immediate settlemen 

was that of a suitable site. The relative merits of several were 

B 



xxxiv Introduction. 



fully discussed, and it was at length decided to accept an offer 
made by the Commissioners of Chelsea Hospital of the site about 
to be vacated by the Military Exhibition. 

A special feature of the proposed Exhibition, in connection 
with the outdoor entertainments, being the evolutions of Blue- 
jackets and Naval drills and exercises, requiring considerable 
scope, arrangements were made to acquire an additional tract of 
land ; the Naval Exhibition, therefore, occupies a space nearly 
eight acres in extent larger than its predecessor. 

Notwithstanding the additional accommodation thus afforded 
there has been no difficulty in obtaining a sufficient number of 
exhibits ; on the contrary, it has been necessaiy to subject the 
offers that have been made to a drastic course of weeding and 
many objects which might legitimately have claimed a place in 
such an Exhibition have been unavoidably excluded, in order to 
afford room for others of still greater or more general interest. 

It was, at the outset, decided that the Exhibition should be 
restricted to purely national objects. The exigencies of space, apart 
from other considerations, rendered it imperative to exclude 
foreign exhibits. It was also decided that any surplus funds arising 
from the Exhibition should be placed in the hands of Trustees to 
form the nucleus of a Benevolent Fund for the benefit of the widows 
and relatives of persons whose deaths are attributable to the Naval 
Service. 

Negotiations were entered into which resulted in the acquirement 
for the purposes of the/Naval Exhibition of the buildings specially 
erected in 1890 for the use of the Royal Military Exhibition ; these 
were for the most part well adapted to the purpose, but, as will 
be seen by those familiar with the site, it has been necessary to 
re-arrange and in several instances to supplement them. 

A guarantee fund was formed, which met with ready support ; 
the Exhibition was registered under the title of " The Royal Naval 
Exhibition, 1891 " and Sub-Committees were formed to deal with 
the various heads into which such an undertaking naturally divided 
itself. 

The formation of a Local Committee at Devonport under the 
presidency of H.R.H. The Duke of Edinburgh has already been 
referred to. Similar organizations were effected at Portsmouth 
and Sheerness by the Naval Commanders-in-Chief, Admiral 
Sir J. E. Commerell, V.C., K.C.B. and Vice-Admiral Curme 
respectively. It is difficult to speak too highly of the work 
performed by these Committees ; not only were the duties and 



Introduction. xxxv 



responsibilities of the Central Committee thereby sensibly 
diminished, but the local interest evolved resulted in the production 
of many objects of great historical interest which might other- 
wise have easily escaped discovery. 

The Committee desire to record the great obligations they 
have been placed under by Sir Albert Rollit, M.P., who has acted 
as Honorary Solicitor and also to express their gratitude to 
Messrs. Ogden, Palmer, and Langton for their services as 
Honorary Accountants ; to Mr. Follett Pennell, the Honorary 
Auditor ; and to the London and South Western Bank, for the 
facilities afforded them in financial matters. 



The ancient British name of Britain, " Clas Merdin," the 
"sea defended green spot," shows the importance attached, even 
at that early date, to our insular position and, as a natural 
sequence, to our " first line of defence." 

The earliest British ships were probably coracles constructed 
of twigs covered with ox hides, capable of containing three or four 
people and, in summer, of passing over to Ireland or across the 
Channel. 

There are but few pictorial representations of British or 
Norman vessels before the nth Century, but, so far as can be 
ascertained, the ships of the Saxon period were nothing but large 
undecked boats, never exceeding 50 tons burthen, and capable 
of carrying from 50 to 60 men. The poop and stern were elevated, 
they had one mast only, and were steered by paddles fixed to the 
quarter, the modern rudder not having been generally adopted 
until the end of the I3th Century; when not in use they were 
drawn up on shore. 

The necessity of repelling the attacks of the East Anglians and 
Northumbrians induced Alfred to build "long ships," which had 
the merit of being swifter, steadier and higher than those pre- 
viously in use. 

The reign of Alfred forms a landmark in Naval History, as 
he was the first English sovereign who commanded the fleet in 
battle, and may therefore be described as the first admiral. After 
his death the Navy fell into great decay but his great grandson, 
Edgar, is said, on doubtful authority, to have claimed the title of 
" King of the Seas ;" but, however this may be, he may legitimately 
be considered to have originated the idea of " annual manoeuvres " 
which thus leap at once to a respectable antiquity ; his practice was 



xxxvi Introduction. 



every year to divide his fleet into two divisions, and circumnavigate 
the coast to prevent the incursions of pirates and " to train his 
people to war." 

Canute owed his crown to the Navy, having been chosen king 
by the fleet ; probably a unique instance of such a power being 
exercised by the Navy. 

Originally, no doubt, the ships, such as they were, were used 
indiscriminately for war or commerce, but from an ordinance of 
Ethelred (978 1016), it appears that at that time there were already 
two distinct kinds of ships, those used for war being considered the 
property of the king. They were fitted out and manned by cities 
and towns according to an established rate, aided by a special tax or 
a grant from the king's revenue, e.g., if the king sent ships to sea 
twenty shillings were collected from every burgess of Lewes for 
the wages of the crews, and when the king went on an expedition 
twenty of the burgesses of the City of Oxford had to attend him or 
pay a fine of ^20. By degrees the commercial duties of the fleet 
became subordinated to the military, but even after the institution 
of " king's ships " as a distinct and permanent force it was occa- 
sionally the practice to hire them out for commercial purposes in 
time of peace, and as late as the time of Henry VII. we find this 
convenient method of reducing the Navy Estimates resorted to. 

The part played by the Navy in the attempt to repel the invasion 
of William the Norman is somewhat obscure ; it is known that 
during the months in which the flotilla intended for the conveyance 
of the invaders was being collected, Harold kept the seas with a 
considerable fleet, but that before the actual crossing took place he 
was compelled to disband the whole or a considerable part on 
account of want of supplies. This fleet was largely composed of 
vessels furnished by the Cinque Ports under their charters, and it 
is possible that the ships belonging to Romney were retained in 
commission and that they did good service, for it is somewhat 
grimly recorded that the first thing William did after his victory 
was to march to Romney, where " he took what vengeance he 
would for the slaughter of his men." 

Until the early part of the fourteenth century the " king's ships" 
were a mere skeleton force which required to be largely supple- 
mented in time of war ; the chief source of Naval strength lay in 
the ships which the Cinque Ports were bound by their charters to 
furnish. These towns Hastings, Sandwich, Dover, Romney and 
Hythe-^to which Winchelsea and Rye, officially known as "the 
two ancient towns" were added soon after the Conquest furnished, 



Introduction. xxxvii 



in all, 57 ships, the complements of which, according to the Port 
Domesday Book, were a "rector" or master, a "constable" or 
boatswain, 21 men and a boy. 

For upwards of a century the history of the Cinque Ports is 
practically the history of the British Navy, so much so that the 
ships furnished by that confederation are frequently styled in the 
old records " the Royal Navy of the Cinque Ports." 

According to the representations in the Bayeux Tapestry and 
other records, the ships of the eleventh, twelfth and thirteenth 
centuries were partially decked vessels of about 20 tons burthen, 
rigged with one mast and one large sail ; they were considerably 
curved at bow and stern, and when employed as fighting ships 
were fitted with " castles " (hence " forecastle ") at either end ; 
there was a smaller " castle," corresponding to the modern " top," 
on the top of the mast ; the ships were fitted with strong bows to 
enable them to ram the enemy, a favourite manoeuvre ; as to arms, 
each sailor was required to provide himself with two spears, one 
of them sufficiently long to reach from one vessel to another, and 
these he was directed to be careful not to lose in throwing ; his 
dtlier offensive weapons were scythes fixed to long poles, axes> 
slings fitted to stalls, barbed darts, stones for heaving and a bow 5 
his defensive armour consisted of a thick breastplate of linen and 
a steel cap. 

T"he confederation of the " Cinque Ports " was at the height of 
its power during the reigns of John j Henry III., and Edward I. j 
but as the greed of colonisation awoke, the sphere of Naval opera- 
tions enlarged ; commerce opened out in all directions; and the" 
Ports gradually lost their exclusive privileges: They still bbrfe 
their share, and an important one, in the great victory of -Sluysi 
but the conclusion of the reign of Edward III. saw their decay 
already far advanced. Those who would investigate further the 
causes of this decay will find them discussed at length in Professoi' 
M. Burrows's recent " History of the Cinque Ports." Gradually, 
under the fostering care of Henry V., Edward IV., and the 7th and 
8th Henrys, a permanent and extensive King's Navy was formed, 
and the functions of the Cinque Ports subsided into the duty of 
transporting Royal personages across the Channel. 

Victories such as that of Sluys, although won at sea, were not 
Naval victories in the modern sense of the term they were won 
after hand to hand fights between soldiers embarked for the 
occasion, led by officers who fought on sea or land indifferently, as 
occasion required. 



xxxviii Introduction, 



The foundations of the present sySlem of a body of officers and 
men trained exclusively for the service of the Royal Navy, were 
laid by Henry VIII., who created the Navy Office and the Trinity 
House, and the dockyards at Portsmouth, Deptford and Woolwich, 
but the personnel of the Royal Navy was not regulated on its 
present lines until the time of the Stuarts, the first regulations for 
the examination for the rank of Lieutenant having been established 
in 1677. 

The exigencies of space render it impossible to do more than 
glance at the vicissitudes which the Navy has undergone since 
the reign of Henry VIII., the weakness to which it was reduced 
under the rule of Edward VI. and Queen Mary, the efforts made 
by Queen Elizabeth to restore it to an adequate strength, efforts 
which were in no small degree assisted by the confidence inspired 
by the brilliant exploits of Drake in his laudable endeavours to 
" singe the King of Spain's beard," and which bore their fruit in 
the marvellous defeat of the Armada ; the degradation and decay 
into which it fell during the reign of Charles II. when Pepys re- 
ported that the naval administration was a prodigy " of wastefulness, 
corruption, ignorance, and indolence, that no estimate could be 
trusted, that no contract was performed, that no check was en- 
forced." From such a picture we gladly turn to the record of 
the heroic courage of Sir Richard Grenville, the victories of Blake, 
Benbow, Howe, Rodney, St. Vincent, Boscawen, Duncan, Hawke 
and Nelson ; the adventurous voyages of Cabot, Frobisher, 
Raleigh,. Drake, Anson, Cook, Byron and Franklin; the brilliant 
exploits of Cochrane and Sir Sidney Smith and the constructive 
genius of Pelt and Seppings. 

Nor is any record necessary beyond the recital of their names, 
" by their fruits ye shall know them." 

It is not too much to say that never before has such a collec- 
tion of mute but glorious witnesses to England's Naval Supremacy 
been gathered together, and in gazing at them it will be well to 
bear in mind the words of Sir Walter Raleigh : " England is a 
and which can never be conquered whilst the kings thereof keep 
the dominion of the sea."

" It is on the Navy under the Good Providence of 
God, that our Wealth, Prosperity, and Peace Depend." 



These words have been inscribed above the Main Entrance to the Exhibition 
Buildings, and have been adopted as the motto in connection with the 
Exhibition. The sentence itself has been adapted from the preamble to the 
Naval Discipline Act (29 & 30 Viet. Cap. CIX.) better known as " The Articles 
of War/' and it would be difficult to frame anything more appropriate to the 
Exhibition itself, or more in accordance with the glorious traditions and history 
of that great Service which has called the Exhibition into existence. 



THE TROPHY 

Facing the main entrance has been erected from a design by Mr. Spanton, 
of H.M.S. "Britannia." 

The idea is to show on one side ancient, and on the other modern, 
weapons of war, &c., as used on board ship, while the figure of Britannia 
connects the past with the present. 

The statue was modelled by Mr. W. C. May for the Armada Memorial 
at Plymouth, and the cast has been kindly lent by him, together with the 
bas-reliefs on the pedestal. 

The arms, &c. , have been arranged by Mr. Rice of the Ordnance Wharf, 
Portsmouth, by whom also the pillars in front of the Trophy have been 
decorated. 



BRITISH SEA COMMERCE AND NAVAL RESPONSIBILITIES.

and separated from it by a screen with ornamental iron gates,

and in these three galleries is located the 

ARTS SECTION. 

THE Insignia and Relics of the CINQUE PORTS represent the earliest naval 
fighting force of the English nation of which we have any certain knowledge. 
The fleet of 57 ships which, in return for valuable franchises, the Cinque Ports 
undertook to provide was liable to military service for 15 days, whenever the 
King should call it out. Fcr any extension of the time of service the King 
paid at a fixed rate. Each ship was requ'red to carry a crew of 21 men and a 
boy ; each had a "rector " cr master, as well as a " constable," or boatswain. 
Thus their whole force consisted of 1,368 officers and men, to which the King 
appears to have added on occasion a contingent of troops. The form of these 
" ships " is ascertained from the Cinque Pert Seals, some of which are exhibited. 
They seem in the earliest times to have varied from 20 to 60 tons burden, and 
were little more than large boats, partially decked, and rigged with one stout 
mast and one large square sail. From the fore-castle, after-castle, and top- 
castle, the archers and cross-bowmen discharged their missiles. 

To this fleet the Kings of England for some ages intrusted the guardian- 
ship of the English Channel ; it conveyed the King when he crossed the 
sea; and it fought his battles. It was led by the Earl of Salisbury in 1213 
to victory at Damme, and won the decisive battle of Dover Straits under 
Hubert de Burgh in 1217. It was unfairly matched against the whole of 
the French naval forces by King Henry III., and formed the advanced guard 
of Earl Simon de Montfort in the Barons' War. King Edward I. employed it in 
the Conquest of Wales and Scotland; and in 1293 it destroyed the French 
fleet in a pitched battle at St. Mahe. Even as late as the reign of King 
Edward III., when the Kings own ships began to be of some importance, the 
fleet of the Cinque Ports formed a chief part of the force led by the King at 
Sluys, at the Siege of Calais, and at the battle of Lespagnols-sur-Mer. At the 
end of his reign, and during that of King Richard II., the French revenged

themselves by burning the Cinque Port towns. This disaster, and still more 
the unceasing silting-up of the harbours, caused the gradual decay of the 
Confederation. Their last service of importance was performed against the 
Spanish Armada. 

The names of the confederated ports chartered by Edward the Confessor 
are Hastings, Sandwich, Dover, Romney, and Hythe ; King Henry II. 
added Winchelsea and Rye. Thus they are officially addressed as "The 
Five Cinque Ports and Two Ancient Towns." Soon afterwards they began to 
enrol other towns as "Members" of the Confederation, 8 of them being 
Corporate, and 24 Non-Corporate, towns. Seaford, Pevensey, Fordwich, 
Deal, Folkestone, Faversham, Lydd, and Tenterden form the first group : 
Ramsgate, Walmer, Margate, and Brightlingsea alone of the second group, 
survive as places of any importance. 

The military character of the Confederation grew out of the organisation 
of the Kentish Coast-men for the Herring Fishery. For many centuries they 
held the guardianship of Yarmouth Fair, regulated by the King from time to 
time, and only relinquished in 1663. Their oldest institutions were connected 
with this office. 

Amongst their numerous franchises none was more cherished than their 
" Honours at Court," recited in the earliest charter now surviving, that of 1278. 
At Coronations the Barons of the Cinque Ports a title which dates from the 
Norman reigns and is still in use bore on the points of silvered spears a silken 
canopy, with a bell at each corner, over the King and Queen. At the feast 
which followed the Barons sat at the next table to the King on his right hand. 
It was as a Royal Navy that they had the precedence of every one else in 
Court Honours. This "custom" was "ancient" when King Richard the 
First was crowned, and has been regularly observed. The Cinque Ports 
still enjoy exceptional privileges, and at the last census included within their 
" liberties " a population of 174,279. 

But though the Cinque Ports were thus, from a very early period, the 
nucleus of the Navy of England, every ship and every seafaring man in the 
country was subject to be " arrested " for the King's service ; and the Lord 
Admiral's first duty on being appointed was to make himself acquainted with 
the number and names of available ships and men. In case of a general 
armament, many towns, besides the Cinque Ports, added their quota to the 
fleet ; and prominent among these, in the time of Edward III., were London, 
Bristol, Yarmouth, Southampton, Portsmouth, Poole, Dartmouth, Plymouth, 
Looe, and Fowey. Poole and Dartmouth obtained a special notoriety as haunts 
of privateers, scarcely distinguishable from pirates. Dartmouth was the home 
of Chaucer's typical sailor, who " certeinly was a good felawe," although 

" Of nyce conscience took he no keep. 
If that he fbughte and hadde the heigher hand. 
By water he sente hem hoom to every land ;" 



Arts Section. 17 



a reference to the ordinary way of disposing of prisoners ; and of Poole, 
it was said : 

" If Poole was a fish-pool, and the men of Poole fish, 
There'd be a pool for the devil, and fish for his dish." 

In addition, however, to the force thus supplied by the maritime towns, 
there was always a certain varying contingent of King's ships, the establishment 
of which dated back as far as the days of Ethelred, or Alfred, or even earlier ; 
but was placed on a more distinct and permanent footing under Henry VIII. 
by the institution of the Trinity House at Deptford, and of the Board long 
known as the Navy Board. This was composed of the " Principal Officers of 
the Navy " the Treasurer, Comptroller, Surveyor, and Clerk of the Acts 
who, under the LorJ Admiral, were responsible for the administration of the 
" Navy Royal," which, from the increase in the size ef ships, rendered neces- 
sary by the use of cannon, became of continually greater importance in the 
measure of the country's naval strength. Out of the very numerous fleet 
assembled to oppose the "Invincible" Armada in 1588, the stress of the 
righting fell almost entirely on the Queen's ships ; comparatively few of the 
others being able to match themselves against the Spaniards' huge galleons. 

This brilliant and glorious war gave a new impulse to the " Navy Royal : " 
the country seemed to have learned that in it lay its true power and most 
effective defence ; and many new ships of a large size, were added to it. But 
the financial difficulties of James I. and Charles I., and the troubles of the 
Civil War prevented its being maintained at an adequate strength ; and when 
the war with Holland broke out in 1652, the number of State's ships was very 
far below the nation's requirements. A great many merchant-ships were 
therefore hired for the public service ; and as it was found that, under the 
more stringent conditions of a purely naval war, there was some difficulty in 
regulating the conduct and discipline of their commanders, provision was made 
that in all cases the officers of such ships must be appointed and commissioned 
by the State. 

The Navy List thus began to assume a degree of permanence ; and during 
the succeeding Dutch wars, the code of discipline and organization took the 
form which it has since maintained. At the same time, the advantage of the 
larger and more powerful ships of the State, proved repeatedly in several of the 
battles with the Dutch, gave an impulse to the development of naval archi- 
tecture ; and after the Revolution, the number of merchant ships hired into 
the service was absolutely small, and the size of them inconsiderable ; they 
were seldom available except as cruisers of scouts. 

At this time, too, it was finally recognized that ships of small size were out 
of place in a general action ; the idea of fighting in line had been gradually 
developed, more especially in the actions between the combined English and 
French fleets and the Dutch in 1673, and the combined Dutch and Spanish 



1 8 Arts Section. 

fleets and the French in 1676. It had thus corne about that the strength of 
fleets Was no longer counted in gross, as during the first and second Dutch 
wars, but by the number of " ships fit to lie in a line," an expression of 1690, 
which, by 1692, had settled down into " ships of the line of battle." 

This "line of battle," or "line ahead, dose to the wind," was established 
as the only fighting formation, and was so recognised by all the Maritime 
Powers. It was formulated in a code of Fighting Instructions, which forbade 
any departure from the prescribed order ) and though experience showed that 
by adhering to it no definite advantage was to be gained, without a great 
superiority of numbers, and though Sir George Byng at Cape Passaro, in 17 18, 
and Sir Edward Hawke in Quiberon Bay, in 1 759, showed how much was to be 
gained by a judicious violation of the rule, it continued in force till Sir George 
Rodney, by an accidental but distinct breach of it, in 1782, inflicted a decisive 
defeat on the French fleet off Dominica, and did away with the pedantry of 
prescribed formations and pre-ordered manoeuvres. Then came the era of 
Howe, St. Vincent, Duncan^ and Nelson, who, no longer bound by the fetters 
of routine, gave free scope to their genius, and emblazoned on our history the 
glorious names of Ushaht, Sh Vincent, Camperdown, the Nile, Copenhagen; 
and Trafalgar a continuous succession of brilliant victories, to which naval 
history offers no parallel. 

It Would, however, be a grave mistake to suppose that during all these 
years, the work of our Navy is adequately described in the catalogue of its 
glories. It has, indeed, sufficed, on the comparatively rare days of battle, to 
withstand or crush the enemy's fleets or ships; and to win for itself undying 
renown ; but it has also sufficed, on every day of war, to maintain our coasts 
iriviolate, to sweep the enemy's commerce from the seas, and to protect our 
own. It has often been said that, notwithstanding our great naval strength, 
our commercial losses were still very great. It is true ; but in estimating those 
losses the gains must also be reckoned. Our losses were great because our 
commerce was great ; because in time of war we had the practical monopoly 
of the commerce of the world ; because our mercantile shipping grew and 
developed in war, at the expense of our enemies ; and the losses we sustained, 
though great in absolute numbers or value, were trivial in comparison with 
the whole number and the sum total from which they were taken. 

But this, the all-important, the abiding work of our Navy, the ceaseless and 
grinding pressure which it has exercised on our enemies, the security of our 
shores, the increase of our commerce, the driving of hostile flags from the sea, 
cannot be adequately represented by the art to which our galleries are 
dedicated. The painter can indeed show the portraits of our heroes, or the 
representation in fact or fancy of some of their achievements. He can 
show " the blue flag bearing down on the white," and can give some idea of 
"the hawk-like swoop" in Quiberon Bay 5 he can shoW the slow advance 



Arts Section. 19 



and terrible onslaught of the Victory or the Royal Sovereign at Trafalgar ; he 

can show how 

" Brave Broke, ke waved his sword, 
Crying ' Shannons, let us board ! ' " 

or, coming down to our own days, he can show the meaning of the signal " Well 
done, Condor ! " ; but nothing here can show the security, the peace, the 
wealth which has sprung, in only a less degree, from the every-day actions of 
every-day men, whose names were scarcely known beyond the walls of the 
Admiralty, but who were, none the less, the units which made up the grand 
Whole of England's Navy, " the wall and fence of the kingdom." 

So far as circumstances have permitted) the portraits and battle pieces in 
the two larger galleries; Blake and Nelson, have been arranged in chronological 
order, and thus present a fairly complete view of the war services of the Navy t 
from the time of Henry VIII. The same idea has ruled in the arrangement 
of the water colours and engravings in the Benbow gallery ; where will also be 
found many humourous representations of the social life of the Navy. 

The Committee desire to convey their warmest thanks to all who have so 
cordially and liberally responded to their appeal, and have enabled them to 
bring together a collection of pictures and relics of naval interest, such as has 
never been equalled. 



The numbers consilience in the North-East end of the Blake Gallery, 
and continue from left to right to the East Entrance, then passing into the 
Nelson Gallery are continued on the South and North Walls respectively, 
and terminate on the screens commencing from the East end. 

The Works are Catalogued tinder the names given to them by the 
Contributors. 

The Arts Committee accept no responsibility as to their authenticity)

1797- Beyond the San Josef is seen the San Nicolas, of 80 guns, in pos- 
session of the crew of Nelson's ship, the Captain, 74 guns. By BARKER. 

The incident here depicted is thus described in Nelson's own words : 
" On the quarter-deck of a Spanish first-rate, extravagant as the story 
may seem, did I receive the swords of vanquished Spaniards ; which, 
as I received, I gave to William Fearney, one of my bargemen ; who put 
them, with the greatest sangfroid, under his arm. I was surrounded by 
Capt. Berry, Lieut. Pearson, of the 6gth Regiment, John Sykes, John 
Thomson, Francis Cooke, all old Agamemnons ; and several other 
brave men, seamen and soldiers. Thus fell these ships.'' In a postscript 
he adds : "In boarding the San Nicolas (from which ship he crossed 
over to the San Josef}, I believe we lost about seven killed and ten 
wounded, and about twenty Spaniards lost their lives by a foolish resist- 
ance none were, I believe, lost in boarding the San Josef. There is 
a saying in the Fleet too flattering for me to omit telling, viz. , ' Nelson's 
patent bridge for boarding first-rates,' alluding to my passing over an 
enemy's 8o-gun ship." 

The portrait of Nelson is from a cast by Flaxman. The portraits of 
Capt. Berry, who stands between Nelson and his bargeman, and Lieut. 
Pearson, who is on the right of the latter, are from original pictures.

547 Capture of L'Hercule, 74, by H.M.S. Mars, 74, Captain A. Hood, 
2 1st April, 1798. By T. LUNY. 

A most determined action. During most of the time the ships were 
so close that the guns could not be run out, but had to be fired inboard. 
Twice the men of L'Hercule attempted to board, but each time were 
repulsed with great slaughter ; and at length, having sustained the 
terrible loss of about 290 killed and wounded, L'Hercule surrendered. 
The Mars lost Captain Hood and 60 men wounded and 30 killed or 
missing. The Mars on this occasion really mounted 82 guns, and 
L'Hercule, 78 ; but, all things considered, the two ships were as nearly 
equal as possible. Lent by Admiral Sir A. If'. A. Hood, G.C.B.

The French ship Guillaume Tell, 80, with many troops on board, 
slipped out of Malta at II p.m., 3Oth March, 1800. The Penelope, 44, 
Captain Blackwood, at once gave chase, came up with her at 12.30 
a.m., luffed under her stern, gave her the port broadside, then bore 
up under the Guillaume Tell's port quarter, and gave her the star- 
board broadside. The French ship, aware that, if she brought to, 
the other ship= ~ ( the British squadron (the Foudroyant, 84, and Lion, 
64) would soon take part in the action, only replied with her stern 
chasers, and steered to the N.E. The Penelope continued all night, and 
at daybreak the main and mizen topmasts and the mainyard of the enemy 
came down. The Foudroyant and Lion came up and engaged, and at 
8 a.m. the Guillaume Tell struck, after a most gallant defence, the French 
Admiral refusing to surrender to any but an officer from the frigate. 
This picture was painted from the description of the action in the log 
of Mr. Charles Inglis, first lieutenant of the Penelope to whom Rear- 
Admiral Decres surrendered his sword. Lent by Mrs. Charles Combe.

620 A Gallant Rescue. 

Towards the close of the long French War, Captain the Honorable Sir Charles 
Paget, while cruizing in the Endymion Frigate on the coast of Spain, described a 
French ship of the line in imminent danger, embayed among rocks upon alee shore, 
bowsprit and foremast gone, and riding by a stream cable, her only remaining one. 
Though it was blowing a gale. Sir Charles bore down to the assistance of his 
enemy, dropped his sheet anchor on the Frenchman's bow, buoyed the cable and 
veered it athwart his hawse. This the disabled ship succeeded in getting in, and 
thus seven hundred lives were rescued from destruction. After performing this 
chivalrous action, the Endymion being herself in great peril, hauled to the wind, 
let go her bower anchor, club hauled and stood off shore on the other tack.

625 The Battle of Algiers, 27th August, 1816. By GEORGE CHAMBERS. 

The depredations upon commerce committed by Algerine corsairs, 
and the outrages perpetrated by the Dey of Algiers at Bona, determined 
the British Government to send an expedition to Algiers. A fleet of 
five line of battle ships, five frigates, and ten smaller vessels, was 
despatched under Lord Exmouth, who was joined at Gibraltar by Vice- 
Admiral Baron van Capellen with a squadron of six Dutch ships. The 
Dey not having acceded to the terms proposed to him, the fleet bom- 
barded the batteries from 2 o'clock until nearly midnight, and set on 
fire or sank the vessels lying within the Mole. On the 28th of August 
the Dey yielded, and as a result of the expedition 3,000 Christian slaves 
of various nations were released from captivity.

1019 The Revolt of the Fleet. Engraved by GUCHT after LE CHERON

The Parliament having consoled the Earl of Warwick with the 
command of the Fleet contrary to his Majesty's pleasure, and the Earl 
having endeavoured to intercept a small vessel which the Queen had 
despatched from Holland with arms and ammunition for the King, 
his Majesty began to think it high time to take the Admiralty into his 
own hands, and for that purpose sent his Royal letters to the Captains 
of every ship, commanding them no longer to pay obedience to the 
Earl of Warwick, but to obey such orders as they should receive from 
Sir John Pennington. When the Captains had received these letters, 
many of them expressed their duty and submission, and only waited for 
the orders of Sir J. Pennington, who was not yet arrived. This delay 
the Earl improved to encourage those whom he thought true and to 
watch those he mistrusted. By the proper signal (as represented in this 
print) he summoned the Captains to attend him on board in Council. 
This they all did excepting Captain Slingsby and Captain Wake, who 
attempted to put to sea, but the corruption of the seamen was so great 
that the Captains were seized by their own men and by them carried to 
the Admiral. Lent by Edward Almack, Esq.

complicated ironclad, with her revolving turret and its guns, her electric search 
light towers, the flying bridge, anchors and boats, of which there are 13, 
four being steamers and nine rowing 1 oats. The 56 ft. torpedo boat with which 
she is furnished, weighs in the model about z\ troy ounces. The huge Inglefield 
anchor weighing several tons, would not be much too large in the model for a scarf 
pin, and yet every joint of it will move. The eight Nordenfelt guns, carriages 
and all, can be stood upon a florin, and weigh under half an ounce, and 
yet are made up of 118 separate pieces of silver. Each of the accommodation ladders 
is composed of 41 pieces. There are 136 stanchions to hold the rails round the sides 
of the ship, each with three holes drilled in it no larger than T f, ( ,th part of an inch, 
and the whole weighing f of an ounce. These details of some of the parts com- 
prising these two models will serve to show the minuteness cf the work when such 
large objects as war ships and their fittings have to be reduced to model sizes. 
Altogether the two models have been built up of about 9,000 pieces, every one made 
to measurement. To fit these together about 5,000 separate solderings have had 
to be made, each time heating the parts to red heat, and something like 7,000 holes 
have had to be drilled. 

Both ships to complete required, something like 2oi working drawings, to the 
scale of y^th of an inch to the foot, and had to be specially made of the different 
parts of the two ships, so as to ensure accuracy of form and proportion. 

The work was entirely carried out by R. Hodd & Son, at Minerva Works, 30 & 
31, Hatton Garden, E.G.

Ayscue, Admiral under the Commonwealth and Restoration, one of the 
bravest and most capable commanders of his time, was taken prisoner 
by the Dutch in 1666, and by them ignominiously paraded through the 
towns for the people to gaze at. Contemporary report says that he was 
for this purpose painted, and provided with a tail !

2049 1664. Contemporary Manuscript Address presented to " his High- 
ness The Duke of Yorke : upon his expedition To sea : the 9 th of 
Novem br 1664." Pepys,.who notes the departure of the Duke on this 
day, tells us on the 3rd of December, that after his having been abroad 
at sea three or four days with the fleet, the Dutch were all drawn into 
their harbours, and it "seemed like a victory." He appears to have 
considered, however, that it was not much of a triumph for the English, 
the retirement of the enemy being probably occasioned by the weather.

tory w ch it pleased God to bestow upon his Ma ties Navy under y" 
Corhand of His Royall Highness James Duke of York, againgt y* 
fleet of y" States of the United Netherlands, June 3, 1665." In this 
celebrated action, resulting in a decisive victory for the English, our 
fleet was commanded by the Admirals, the Duke of York, the Earl of 
Sandwich, Sir George Ayscue, and Admirals Penn and Lawson ; and 
the Dutch Fleet by Opdam, Evertzen, Cartemaar, and Cornelius Tromp, 
son of the Great Tromp. The action was contested with great bravery 
and determination on both sides, and the slaughter was very great. 
Three persons of quality were killed by the side of the Duke of York, 
and soon afterwards Opdam was blown up and Cartemaar killed by a 
shot from the Duke of York's vessel. Sir John Lawson was wounded 
in the knee and subsequently died of his injuries. 

"Lawson whose valour beyond faith did go, 
" And still fights Opdam in the lake below." 

(Poems on State Affairs.) 

The loss of the Dutch was 18 ships, 6,000 to 8,000 men ; that of the 
English, 7 ships and 2,000 seamen.

2052 1665. Contemporary and Rare Broadside entitled ' ' A Broadside 
more for the Dutch or the Belgick Lion couchant." This effusion con- 
tains the usual amount of braggadocio and bad taste to be found in the 
ephemeral productions of the times. 

2053 1665. Another Contemporary Broadside on the same subject, 
entitled " A Gratulatory Verse upon our late Glorious Victory over the 
Dutch, By the Author of Iter Boreale," also in a boastful vein. 

2054 1665. Contemporary Dutch Broadside with text containing a 
detailed account of the fight and nafnes of the ships and captains. In 
the foreground may be seen the explosion by which Opdam's ship was 
blown up. It will be observed that the date is given in new style 
whilst the English Broadsides are of course in the old style. Opdam is 
mentioned here as " De Heer Van Wassenaer." This was his Dutch 
title and he thus signs his name in the rare autograph exhibited under 
the next No. But to the English he was always known as Opdam.

2061 1666. Contemporary Dutch print of the famous four days naval 
action between the English and Dutch fleets, which took place on the 
1-4 June, O.S. (11-14 J un e, N.S.), 1666. Both sides claimed the victory 
in the bloody encounter, and the valour of each was conspicuous. Sir 
Christopher Myngs, beloved by his comrades, was killed in the action, 
and Ayscue taken prisoner. The slaughter on both sides was prodigious, 
and hardly a ship on either side escaped undamaged. De Witt, who 
was no friend to the English, is reported to have said of them in 
connection with this action, that " if they were defeated their misfortunes 
redounded more to their honour than all their former victories. No fleet 
but theirs, after the severe usage of the first day, would have continued 
an engagement for three successive days longer. Englishmen may be 
killed, English ships may be burned, but English courage is invincible." 
The English Admirals engaged in this action were : Prince Rupert, 
Al~;>2Tnarle (Monck), Myngs, Ayscue, and Berkeley. The Dutch : 
Di "Ruyter, Cornelius Tromp, Evertzen, Meppel, Nes, and Vries.

PRINTS ILLUSTRATIVE OF THE ATTACK ON CHATHAM BY THE DUTCH 
UNDER DE RUYTER, C. DE WlTT, AND VAN GHENT. 

The disaster resulting from this attack, as is well known, was occasioned 
by the supiaeness of Charles II. and the general want of public spirit. 
Albemarle has left a report of his own exertions in attempting to avert the 
contretemps, and his contempt falls heavily on the head of Mr. Commissioner 
Pett, who failed to sink a ship in the narrow channel which the Dutch 
had to pass. The chain across the entrance to the Medway was broken by 
the weight of two Dutch fire ships coming on to it one after the other.

fitted with a saw to facilitate operations.

down about 1787. This view is extremely interesting as indicating the

In the destructive passion of the age, 

Give balls and routs, though my address be rough 

My company will cheer you ; that's enough.

Exhibit 180, COOK GALLERY, Navigation Section. 

These Lamps are of great durability and possess many important improvements over those no\f 
in use, among which may be mentioned 

I. The burner and chimney are provided with breakwind guards for protec- 

tion from extinction of the flame during the firing of guns. 
n. They are so constructed that perfect ventilation is secured. 

III. Instead of using coloured glass shades which absorb a great percentage of 

light, the lenses contain the purest glycerine coloured with imperishable 
mineral dyes. 

IV. The oil tanks are made to revolve in the lamp for the purpose of being 

trimmed without removal. 

V. Special condensing reflectors are firmly attached to each oil tank. 
VI. Expansion bands are fitted round all the lenses, which prevents crackage 
of the glasses from undue expansion. 

These lamps went through a severe test at the hands of the Board of Trade at Shoeburyness, 
and were found proof against sea and wind, and moreover showed that by the use of purest 
glycerine coloured with mineral dyes the penetrating power of the light was fully 50/80 % more 
than the same hght through coloured glass lenses. They have also undergone the tests of the 
Corporation cf the Trinity with most satisfactory results. They will burn 18 hours steadily with- 
out attention, if properly trimmed when first lighted. Testimonials have been received from 
Commanders of steam vessels, speaking of them in terms of the highest praise. 
For further particulars and prices apply to the Stall Attendant, or to the Iwentor-

Here a sheer hulk lies poor Tom Bowling, the darling of our crew,

His form was of the manliest beauty, his heart was kind and soft ; 
Faithful below he did his duty, and now he's gone aloft. 

Tom never from his word departed, his virtues were so rare, 
His friends were many and true hearted, his Poll was kind and fair ; 
And then he'd sing so blithe and jolly, ah, many's the time and oft; 
But mirth is turned to melancholy, for Tom is gone aloft. 



But soon shall Tom find pleasant weather, when He who all commands 

11 hands ; 
life has closed, 



Shall give, to bring life's crew together, the word to pipe all hands ; 
Thus Death who kings and tars dispatches, in vain Tom's lifi 



For tho' his body's under hatches, nis soul is gone aloft. 
Jack in his element."

"THE FLOWING CAN. 
A sailor's life's a life of woe : 

He works now late, now early. 
Now up and down, now to and fro, 

What then, he takes it cheerly. 
Blest with a smiling can of grog, 

If duty call, stand, rise or fall, 
To fate's last verge he'll jog. 
The cadge to weigh, the sheets belay, 

He does it with a wish ; 
To heave the lead or to cat head 

The pondrous anchor fish ; 
For while the grog goes round, 
All sense of danger's drown'd, 

We despise it to a man. 
We sing a little, and laugh a little, 
And work a little, and swear a little, 
And fiddle a little, and foot it a little, 

And swig the flowing can."

minds of his countrymen, a proof of which is supplied by the old 
"Toad" Mug. On one side of the mug is the following inscription, 
which, of course, refers to the toad : 

' ' Tho' malt and venom 

Seem united, 
Don't break my pot 
Or be affrighted ; 
For when it's full 

No spleen is seen, 

And when it's empty 

It's quite clean."
